Funfair For The Common Man: “(but don’t get me started or i’ll veer off into my stock rant about how Pop Will Eat Itself invented breakbeat and they’d be taken a lot more seriously if only they’d taken themselves seriously. and trust me, we don’t need that) “
I think we do actually. This is a position I’ve argued for many times. Never forget that PWEI played with Public Enemy and are namechecked / credited by them on “Millions”. Can U Dig It was about as good as dance music made by white people who weren’t New Order or Adrian Sherwood got in those days. But as you say, no-one took them seriously cos they didn’t. That was an enormous strength IMO.
